One of the star attractions at this year’s iTunes Festival, Linkin Park provided a memorable performance when they graced the prestigious Roundhouse stage on Monday evening. In front of an intimate 3000 capacity show, Linkin Park played tracks from their current album ‘A Thousand Suns’ as well as other favourites from their back catalogue including ‘Numb’, ‘In The End’, ‘Crawling’ and ‘Faint’. But the biggest surprise came when they opened their encore their interpretation of Adele’s hit single ‘Rolling In The Deep’.
Linkin Park will release this live version of ‘Rolling In The Deep’ as a digital download available exclusively from iTunes on July 7th. They have also released the ‘iTunes Festival EP’ today, July 8th, which features ‘Rolling In The Deep’ together with other set highlights in the shape of ‘Waiting For The End’, ‘The Catalyst’, ‘Papercut’, ‘Bleed It Out’ and current single ‘Iridescent’.
‘Iridescent’ features in the current hit film ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ and represents Linkin Park’s third time working with the director Michael Bay. The first Transformers film featured the band’s single ‘What I’ve Done’ which became their highest charting UK single to date when it hit the charts at #6. The second film in the series, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, featured another Top 20 hit from the band with ‘New Divide’ which was written specifically for the film.
Certified as the biggest selling rock / alt band of the decade by Billboard, Linkin Park have already surpassed 50 million sales and earned two Grammy Awards for Best Hard Rock Performance for the track ‘Crawling’ as well as Best Rap / Sung Collaboration with Jay-Z for ‘Numb / Encore.’
